Utz-Snyder’s Deal Off

The Utz-Snyder’s deal that Bohs and O’s reported last week is off.  According to Hanover Evening Sun, the two companies cited a “protracted review” by the Federal Trade Commission as the reason for halting the deal.  This sudden reverse decision makes me a little nervous about the future of Utz.  Is our favorite snack food company in trouble?  Is that why they were willing to be bought by Snyder’s in the first place?  I hope Utz can weather the economic storm and does not need to go out looking for another potential buyer, one of which might be Frito-Lay.  Boh drinkers this is even more reason at your next Ravens tailgate or fall picnic to demand Utz!
